Taking the Horse to Eat Jalebis (Ghode Ko Jalebi Khilane Le Ja Riya Hoon)
Synopsis: The film portrays the layers of lives lived by the people of Old Delhi — a pickpocket, a snacks vendor, a labourer-activist, and a conductor of Heritage Walks; It’s a fictional narrative stitched with truths and dreams of people. Patru, the pickpocket, takes people on a walk to show them the underbelly of the city only to end up in trouble with merchants and the police. He decides to conduct his last ‘Dream Walk’, where we discover the subterranean consciousness of the city’s migrant population. These walks create a visual and aural history of Old Delhi from different points of view.
